Cwm Taf University Health Board was established in October 2009 and provides primary, community, hospital and mental health services to almost 300,000 people living in Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Ideally situated between Wales’ capital city, Cardiff to the South and the stunning scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park to the North, we operate within a vibrant community, rich with history and heritage.
Our philosophy ‘Cwm Taf Cares’ is at the heart of everything we do. Our commitment to the health, wellbeing and development of our staff is recognised with the highly coveted Platinum Corporate Health Standard.
With almost 8,000 staff our workforce is the life-blood not only of the University Health Board, but many of the South Wales Valleys’ communities that we serve. We take our role as the area’s second largest employer very seriously and this is evident in our wide-ranging partnership working, dedication to our corporate social responsibilities and the importance we place on building relationships with our staff and community.
We believe in innovation to make improvements to clinical care. We are especially proud of our Academic Centre in Merthyr Tydfil which is helping to train future doctors in community medicine.
We continue to be the best performing health board in Wales for ambulance handover times within 15 minutes from arrival at A&E thanks to our patient flow initiative which is continuing to reap benefits.
Our high patient satisfaction score in the Fundamentals of Care audit is testament to the hard work of our staff and their ongoing commitment to our philosophy of Cwm Taf Cares.
If you come to work in Cwm Taf you will be guaranteed a warm Welsh welcome; opportunities for professional development and a clinical environment that innovates to improve.
